A week has passed since I started my RSS diet which brings the experiment “phase” to an end.
“Will you be going back to RSS?” I hear you ask; and the answer is no, I will not.
I really expected to find not using RSS difficult, that I would be spending more time on websites trying to keep up and that I would miss important news. In fact, the opposite has been the case.
I’ve found that I spend less time online consuming content and the time that I do spend is more productive and of more value to me. I haven’t felt that I have missed any news or information and have actually found and read more articles in full.
The only development that may see me return to RSS, although with a more refined set of feeds, is fav.or.it but I am still unable to extract an invitation to their Beta.
So I won’t be returning to RSS and my daily routine already feels less complex.
